OK, thanks. The dmesg looked truncated, so I figured that you had fetched the one from /var/log instead of the one from the dmesg command. No huhu.

I waqnted you to use my XF86Config because it would eliminate a good portion of stupid errors. Looking at the setup now, my best bet is to tell you to stop using that vendor kernel and use a stock kernel from www.kernel.org. 2.4.22 or 2.4.23-rc5 will do fine.

I'm saying that because of the presence of vesafb in the kernel -- I've never needed to use a framebuffer driver on an x86 platform, so you should recompile and ditch it.

Default no way...

I've compiled the 2.4.22 kernel, rebuilt the nVidia kernel interface, executed X and the problem remains.

Attached is the new dmesg output...

(...)

Well, it seems a driver bug: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...&highlight=460

I'll change to 4349 driver's version.

Go back and recompile with CONFIG_DRM=n. Those DRM drivers will totally wreck the NVIDIA drivers and prevent them from working.

Recompiled that way (CONFIG_DRM=n) but nothing changes with 4496.

Both 4363 and 4349 work almost fine... with the screen misplaced (I don't know the exact refresh settings to center the screen, and the 'native' scaling does not work as it should).

Tnx for everything, though! Salutes!
